The Sandy Springs, Georgia-based package-delivery giant said it expects to hire primarily package handlers, drivers and driver-helpers to help with the annual holiday rush from November through January.

“We’re ready to kick off our annual holiday hiring process, and need lots of great people for various positions on all shifts across the country,” said Myron Gray, president of UPS’s U.S. operations. “UPS delivers the holidays, and we also deliver some of the best temporary jobs in the country for tens of thousands of Americans.”

While most of the temporary positions will disappear after the holidays, UPS noted that about 37 percent of people hired seasonally in 2015 now have permanent jobs with the company.
